About Myrna Hasty

We live in Redwood City, CA just south of the San Francisco Bay Area, and visit the condo four times a year to check on all maintenance issues, constantly updating and replacing towels and linens.

Myrna Hasty purchased this studio in 2008

Why Myrna Hasty chose Kailua-Kona

We bought this condo based on several considerations. The location is amazing and less than a mile from downtown Kona Village. The unit is closer to the ocean away from Alii Drive, but the number one reason was the beautiful ocean-side pool with views of the Kona Harbor.

What makes this studio unique

This is a small and charming complex. We are centrally located on Alii Drive, just a quick drive to many beaches, restaurants, shopping, and activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed staying at your island paradise, and will definitely be back. *****

We love the decorations and the Hawaii theme. The location was great close to town. The pool has a great view of the Kailua Bay. It was also wonderfully clean

Great place 15 minute walk to town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kona Shores for 3 weeks. Contact with Myrna was easy, she was super helpful, and her place is fully stocked for anyone wishing to cook (fully outfitted kitchenette, perfect for 2). Very quiet and peaceful community. Adding to some ideas Myrna gave me, there’s a wonderful yoga studio just up Lunapule Road - a 10 minute walk. Also, a great pilates studio just up the highway. We had a wonderful time and plan to return in the future.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was cute with most essentials needed for a comfortable stay. It was very clean and the lanai was cozy with a lovely relaxing fountain to drown out any noise. A few recommendations for planning your trip here is that if you plan to grill, there is only one grill that you have to make reservations for and it is a charcoal grill. We were surprised by the charcoal and already had our food and shopping completed. Additionally, there aren’t any grill tools provided so plan accordingly. We were very pleased to find multiple sized coolers, beach chairs, and beach mats to use for our stay. The pool area is small and has a gorgeous view and sunset to enjoy. The location was close to shopping, restaurants, and everything we needed. Myrna was very accommodating and responsive while planning our trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind word about our condo. Several of us homeowners are pushing hard to have a gas BBQ installed by summer. I will personally pick up some BBQ tools for use down by the pit! Thanks again!

Great Place to Stay in Kona

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several condos in Kona Shores in our travels to Hawaii, and this one was the nicest one yet. Although it doesn't have an ocean view, it has a lovely, relaxing lanai that we really enjoyed. The furniture looked new and the bed was very comfortable. We had everything we needed for our vacation.

Thank you to Myrna for being such a nice host.
